Wow, that looks almost perfect. The only "missing" things for me that you get with a normal bank are a way to do paper deposits, and a way to withdraw more cash than you can get from an ATM (and possibly in hundreds). My need for large cash withdrawals is vanishingly rare, but being able ...

My new favorite beer runs about $16 for a 24oz bottle. I've had one bottle so far. I've got a second one to get, as I offered to fix a coworker's lamp in exchange for a bottle!


Out of curiousity, what kind of beer is it?

Food. I am too lazy to make decent meals to bring to lunch at work, so I go out to eat a lot. It adds up.

That, and I live right next door to 2 upscale grocery stores and I visit them 2-3 times a week without grocery lists and buy random junk I don't need.

Here's the way I've been saving lately, which has been working GREAT. Not everyone may be able to do things this way, however. At my work, I can setup direct deposit to go to however many accounts I want. So, for example, I can set it up so that 85% of my pay goes to my main checking, 10% goes to on...

Will, do you mean that they're the same price as the print copy of the same book? And are you talking about new books or old books?


Yes, and I was looking at new books.

I was looking into ebooks again, and I just noticed that a lot of ebooks seem to cost the exact same amount as a regular book. That, in my opinion, is bogus. It must cost virtually nothing to distribute ebooks -- they're hosted online. There's no cost for paper, printing/binding, warehouses, distrib...

I would -LOVE- to convert to ebooks if it made any sense to do so. There just doesn't seem to be any one solid standard for ebooks (the books or the readers). That, and almost every time I've went online to see if whatever book I'm interested in is available in ebook format, it isn't available. I do...

I'm planning on being debt free in December. I'm currently saving for a new TV that I plan to treat myself to around the same time I'll be debt free (paid cash, of course) :)

I've been a happy ING savings account customer since 2004, and I recently signed up for their Electric Orange checking account. It offers 4% APY, a MasterCard debit card, free bill-pay, etc. It's a "paperless" account, which can be a good thing... but the one real nuisance is you can't wri...

Nice. I used to go there all the time a number of years ago to find good deals on DVD's :)

right now my emergency fund has a whopping $56 in it.. this is at ING savings. I just started it. Direct depositing 6% of my paychecks into it for now. Hoping to get to $1000 in the near future, but I'm focusing more on getting out of debt for the time being.

Where do you live, Will? Some cities, such as Portland, have a great bike culture, and you can find lots of support and encouragement from local riders. Robblatt has a good idea: check craigslist for bikes. There's always a wealth of them to choose from. I'm in the Minneapolis area. I was talking t...
